I'll help you out here...

Victoria Jackson is a dumb, evil, racist, teabagger who re-tweets vile blatantly racist photos, links to stupid conspiracy theories, and believes election fraud is what won Obama the election. She makes me very angry and I hate her guts!

...feel better now? After all you didn't say it, I did. :p

The teabaggers - a term they once used to describe themselves because they didn't know what "teabagging" was (then Newt Gingrich called it a "slur." Hilarious!) - aren't going anywhere. They'll be gunning to retake the Senate in 2014, and making their majority in the House veto-proof. And they'll do that with their tried and true formula of paranoia, racism, lies, and conspiracy theories.
And their "willing accomplices." on talk radio and Fox "News" will promote them like never before.

It will be hard not to hate them.

Regardless of whether the Iraq invasion was a good thing or not it was illegal. International law makes no exceptions. Unprovoked war against another sovereign nation is illegal.

The Bushies knew that. They wanted that. The invasion of Iraq was a message to the world. "The U.S. is in charge. This is what happens to people who get in our way. Be fearful and obey." It was the most blatant act of violence against another nation since, well, since Saddam invaded Kuwait.

Fortunately this act did not cause the collapse of international law that the neo-cons hoped would happen. Just as well, the world turns and someday it could be the U.S. that is invaded and it would have had no friends left nor could it call upon the U.N. to help it as the U.N. would be gone. So international law, weak as it is, still holds. Without it we'll return to the world of the late 19th Century where countries protected themselves through an intricate web of alliances.

Where, someday, a minor political act will happen, like the assassination of an Archduke in Sarajevo and the alliances trigger like a string of firecrackers. Except this time the combatants will all have weapons of mass destruction.

Won't that be fun?

As far as hating and being angry at the TPGOP, I don't. I pity them the same way I pity crackheads. They're addicted to their anger, hate and fear. They need a constant dose to maintain that high and like all addicts their cognitive faculties are damaged, probably beyond repair.

I know because I suffered from anger addiction for many years and my faculties are damaged beyond repair. Luckily I gave it up before the damage was severe.

It doesn't mean you cant mock crazy!

I think you should really try to live up to your pledge. It will be good for your soul. Not all republicans are evil.

I accept that even though I don't believe in supernatural concepts like 'souls'.

Iraq was illegal, immoral and I can't understand why so many Americans just shurg off what we did.
